Fishing Report 4-1-17

No, not an April Fools post, just a quick check in.

The walleyes are moving in on the Rock River. Blackhawk (the mouth ) has been the best spot, but pods of fish are moving up as we speak. If the weather stays stable and we don't lose too much temperature at night, schools of whitebass will be on there way.

On the local lakes, some fish have started to make a spring transition. The water is still very cold, but shallow, dark bottom areas are starting to see some active panfish, especially in the warmer afternoons. You need to finesse these fish to get consistent bites, #10 or #12 red hook with a waxie or spike can get them going.

Stay tuned, sure to get good in the next two weeks.
